All Lady July - Scary Women in Literature
There is no short of scary ladies in literature. Here's a couple!
Mrs Danvers - Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
From an All Lady July #tbt - Rebecca -comes Mrs Danvers. Mrs Danvers is kind of scary on the down low. At first she just seems kind of creepy and weird, but then she starts to be manipulative and embarassing, trying to undermine our narrarator and the new Mrs. I can't lie though, I think devilish Danvers is one of the best parts of Rebecca.
Annie Wilkes - Misery by Stephen King
Annie Wilkes is a super fan in the scariest way, from the King classic Misery. I can't even imagine what she would be like with internet access, God help us. Annie keeps her favorite author hostage, and there is some super graphic violence on some lower extremities. And that is all I will say about that.
The 3 Weird Sisters - Macbeth by William Shakespeare
I am a big Shakespeare fan, and Macbeth is my favorite. These three weird sisters (aka witches) talk to Macbeth about his future and what it could be like if he could just kill that pesky Banquo friend of his.... Also, Lady Macbeth should get in on this too. Because yikes.
Every Stepmother in Every Story Ever - Every Story Ever
Yep. All of them ever.
Who is your favorite scary lady in literature?
